Many users also portray signs of "meth mouth", showing deterioration of teeth and gums completely decayed due to prolonged drug use.

The website cautions that "Addiction touches nearly every family, ravaging physical and mental health, relationships, and personal finances. Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, daughters and sons. No one is immune to the frightening long-term impact of hard drug abuse."
